Which is better: Titanium alloy frame and pure titanium frame?
What is a titanium alloy?
Titanium alloy refers to any alloy metal made of titanium with other metals.Titanium is an important structural metal developed in the 1950s. Titanium alloy has high strength, good corrosion resistance, and high heat resistance.
Application of titanium alloy
Titanium alloy is mainly used in aircraft engine compressor parts, followed by rocket, missile, and high-speed aircraft structural parts.By the mid-1960s, titanium and its alloys were already in common industrial use, making electrodes for industrial electrolysis, condensers for power stations, heaters for petroleum refining and seawater desalination, and pollution control devices.Titanium and its alloys have become a kind of corrosion-resistant structural material.In addition, it is used to produce hydrogen storage materials and shape memory alloys.
Superior properties of titanium alloy
The specific strength (strength/density) of titanium alloy is far higher than other metal structural materials, which can produce high unit strength, good rigidity parts.The engine parts, frames, fasteners, and landing gear are all made of titanium.It can still maintain the demanded strength at medium temperature and can work for a long time at 450 ~ 500℃.
What are the benefits of pure titanium frames?
This is a kind of metal material with a titanium content of up to 89%, and the most amazing features of this kind of material are the high melting point, and it can withstand high temperatures.Apart from carbon fiber, pure titanium is the lightest material of all.The overall mass is not heavy, so it does not cause pretty large pressure on the bridge.Meanwhile, it has strong corrosion resistance. Pure titanium glasses are designed ergonomically, so there is no need to worry about deformation or fading even if they are used for a long time.So it is loved by many consumers.
Should you choose titanium or pure titanium frames?
In reality, there is no absolute good or bad, if it is comfortable to wear, suitable for personal preference. They are good glasses for a single person, because if someone else wears the right and good-looking glasses, you may not wear the right and good-looking glasses yourself. Therefore, it is still a specific problem, with specific analysis, suitable for their own is good.
